Please help support Scottie Middleton as he faces a very difficult time ahead.

Imagine what it would be like to have your entire life changed in the blink of an eye...

Scottie Middleton is your ordinary, run-of-the-mill type of guy. He was raised to be respectful, to help others, and to work hard for the things that needs and wants. He never thought that he would ever be unable to take care of himself or his family.

At the age of 38, Scottie was told that he was in heart failure. For the past 2 years, he has undergone several major surgeries just to keep him alive, and spends every day trying to survive until he can get the heart transplant that he needs. He depends on around the clock medication just to keep his heart working, and has to have help doing things that most of us take for granted. Though he does have good days occasionally, most days are spent confined to either his bed or a hospital bed.

Scottie has an 8 year old daughter, and his dream is to once again be able to go outside and to enjoy doing things with her that he used to be able to do. In order for that to happen, though, he has to endure several more months of hospital stays, tests, and surgeries. He has been told that a heart transplant is his only chance to survive, and that he needs it soon. In the interim, he will need to undergo a surgery to attach a device to his heart, called an LVAD, which will relieve some of the stress off of his heart in order to keep it from totally failing.

Scottie is currently a patient at a hospital in New Orleans, LA. Between hospital stays and ER visits, the financial burden that is being placed on him and his family is overwhelming. Any donation that you could give would be greatly appreciated. Of course, prayers are always appreciated too.
